Description

The best route on the wall with excellent protection and fluid movements. The crux is down low during the first two bolts then it's pretty much a cruiser. Not to be missed if going to Jacks Canyon!!

Location

This is the second route right of the dirty chimney splitting the walls. The first two bolts go straight up; then follow two right-angling bolts; then straight up the well-spaced but easy climbing sport route to the fixed anchors. ***Please take note that there is a lone bolt about 15-20 feet up the wall in between this route and the 5.9 to the left of it. This is an unfinished route that leads to nowhere; make sure you traverse right when doing this climb!! Have Fun

Protection

Six conveniently placed bolts will get you to the fixed anchors up top for your rappel.

The route is easy to identify because there is a dead-end bolt (past #2 I think). The route direction was later changed to move to the climber's right after the second bolt. Apr 20, 2009

This is a super fun route. We weren't sure what we were climbing when we climbed it but the features up high looked so appealing and the climb was so long (for Jacks) that I had to get on it. Really enjoyable. Jun 2, 2007
